Dakota Scream - Dakota Scream Newsletter Interview

07 Nov 2010 // An interview by Shade
 


What can we expect to see from Dakota Scream band over the next year?

As many shows as humanly and physically possible in as many venues as exist, as well as the release of the EP.

Who are your favourite NZ musicians/bands, and why?

Shihad, because their first few albums have that testicles to the wall feel which is a good motto.

The Datsuns, because of their pure inspiring live energy and great sing along tunes, that will always be enjoyed!

What advice would you like to give to other aspiring musicians?

Always go testicles to the wall.

Who would you most like to support live?

In Flames, Metallica, Machinehead, Lady Gaga. (The last one is true, because I’m sure she hasn’t had a metal act opening for her yet, and her live show is phenomenal!

What is your favourite NZ venue?

The Royal Tavern down in Palmerston North, good sound, good venue layout, and great hospitality!

What rumour would you like to start about Dakota Scream?

That red pandas have entered our brains and are speaking to the world via our music.
That Vaughn is awesome!

How did you come up with the name Dakota Scream?

It’s based upon the idea of world classed teen actress Dakota Fanning having quite a shocking dream and the band name is thus her reaction (being that she is screaming).
